Dallas Smith Lands New Deal With Blaster Records
Dallas Smith has signed a new deal with Blaster Records, meaning that fans can soon expect a U.S. release from the Canadian singer.
"It's great to collaborate with the team at Blaster. They are equally as passionate as I am," Smith says in a press release. “I’m excited to continue to build on what we are doing and take it to the next level."
Blaster Records President Derek Simon adds that "great music" and "passionate, committed people" are two things the label thrives on -- and two things that Smith brings to the table.
"Spend 10 minutes watching one of Dallas' shows and it’s clear how special of a singer and performer he is," Simon continues. "The new music he's making is so strong and compelling."
The 37-year-old Smith, who spent the 2000s as the lead singer of alternative rock band Default, released his solo country debut, Jumped Right In, in Canada in 2012. In 2014, he released a second album, Lifted, in Canada, as well as two EPs, Tippin' Point and Lifted, that both earned Top 40 spots on the U.S. charts. Smith has earned numerous Canadian Country Music Association Awards nominations, and Lifted won a Juno Award earlier this year.
The singer is currently in the studio working on his U.S. debut full-length album with producer Joel Moi, who worked with the singer on his Canadian projects and has also worked with Florida Georgia Line and Jake Owen. Smith plans to release a new single, "Kids With Cars," on Sept. 11.
The British Columbia native is currently out on the road, with dates scheduled through November. See a list of upcoming shows at DallasSmithMusic.com.
